    I have 1 trouble-free season, trails/logs/rocks but no big drops, with an Avid 203 mm mechanical disc on a 2004 Marzocchi MX Comp ETS. The ride is a '95 Trek Y-22. The rider is 6'3'', 205 and 58. HTH Tony

    I had a Magura Julie w/a 180mm rotor and didnt have any trouble, but then again that brake was super weak.

    One thing I did notice is that the drop outs were getting worn away from slight movement. I think this was do from the axle nuts being Al and not steel, it was a formula hub and the axle nuts were too soft and didnt bite the dropout well enuff.

    It was on a 02 mxc

    I've always run 8 inch front rotors.

    Since the first set of Hayes disc I bought over 6 years ago, I've always ran 8 inch front rotors. After years of riding and wrenching on motorcycles, it just seemed to make sense.

    Anyway, I've run MILES in northern Cali on some nice trails without a problem, including trails like downieville, many Tahoe trails, Northstar ski area, most of the trails in the sierra mountains.

    The following forks have been no problem for me with 8 inch rotors:

    Marzocchis
    99 Z1 alloy (no other choice but 8 inch rotors for this fork)
    98 Z2 BAM
    98 Z2 Alloy
    2000 Z3 flylight
    2001 Z3
    2001 Z2 atom
    2003 Z1 FR
    2003 DJII
    2003 MX comp
    2004 Z150 sl

    White Bros
    XC3
    AT3
    VT1.3 20mm

    RST/Mozo
    3.5 pro

    Manipoo
    Black comp


    No problems yet. But I do a lot of pre/post ride checks on my bikes so hopefully I'll catch any problems before I take a bad header.
